Vegan singer Billie Eilish revealed her go-to order at Taco Bell—which recently debuted a dedicated vegetarian menu nationwide to make it easier for customers to order meatless meals.
“I’m going to get 18 bean burritos with only beans, nothing else, only beans inside,” Eilish said at the chain’s drive-through window in a video from a July 2, 2019 Instagram story that resurfaced on Twitter this week. “Only beans. 18 burritos, and only beans. You know what? Make that 20.” Eilish later revealed that the large order was placed for a birthday party. In recent months, the 17-year-old singer has become more outspoken about her vegan lifestyle. In June, after an undercover investigation at dairy producer Fair Oaks Farms revealed rampant abuse of mother and baby cows, Eilish took to Instagram to encourage her 26 million followers to “be smarter” and go vegan. “I keep my mouth shut most of the time about this because I believe everyone should do eat and say whatever they want … and I don’t feel the need to shove what I believe in, in anyone’s face,” Eilish wrote in conjunction with a video clip of the investigation in an Instagram story. “But man … if you can watch the videos that I just posted and not give a f*ck that it’s you contributing by literally eating the creatures that are being fully tortured just for your pleasure, I feel sorry for you. I understand that meat tastes good … and I know you think you’re just one person and it won’t change anything if you stop but that’s ignorant and stupid.” Last month, the singer teamed up with vegan actor Woody Harrelson to send another compassionate message in a Greta Thungberg-inspired video titled “Our House Is On Fire,” urging viewers to stop eating animals to fight the climate crisis.
